Cooking with kids - pizza

A while back, I posted a simple pizza sauce recipe. The pizza that I made using that sauce never got posted. Like I have said in the pizza sauce post, the inspiration for the sauce came from a book that the little girl and I read. After making the sauce, I cut up some of her favourite veggies and gave her free rein in assembling everything on a ready made pizza base. A few minutes in the oven - and we had a healthy and colourful pizza ready.

What you need:
Pizza base - 1
Pizza sauce (recipe here)
Veggies of your choice - sliced and lightly steam cooked (I have used sprouts, baby corn and capsicum)
Grated cheese - for topping

Spread the pizza sauce evenly and generously on the base. Arrange the sliced veggies on top of that in a single layer. The veggies should be cooked but still crunchy. Top with grated cheese. Cook in the microwave at 80% power for 8-10 minutes or until the grated cheese melts.

This is my second post for this week's blogging marathon themed on Kids' delight - Evening snacks.

I love homemade pizza as we can pick & choose our own topping and as many as we like. Looks delicious!
